A. Dear Client,

Under the POSH Act, you are supposed to form an Internal Complaint committee, and the ICC is composed of four organs: the Presidency, the Chambers, the Office of the Prosecutor, and the Registry. Under ICC a basic enquiry has to be conducted and based on the inquiry decision has to be taken.

You have to make sure any details of the said inquiry don't go out and the whole proceedings stay confidential.

Thank You

So in this scenario, your complaint to the po ...ReadMore
